On tap at the Big Horn Brewery in Rosemont, IL. Pours a clear golden pale brew with a thin white head that dissolves to a fine film. Leaves behind a fine lacing. Aroma of light citrus, young barley malt, with a touch of sugar malt. Taste is lightly carbonated, light bodied with a hint of pine hop aftertaste. Finish is clean and crisp.

Sampled Draft: Pours a golden straw with a smaller white head. Mild nose of malt, taste is also a lighter version with malt, wheat, and barley a hint of hops. Good for the light beer drinker... perhaps.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at Ram - Wheeling, IL as "Chicago Blonde". Poured a clear, very bright golden with a short white head... dusting and a ring. Aroma was light and bready with an aire of lemon.. solid for the style. Flavor had an almost tangy bready base with hints of lemon and some herbal bitterness.. light and pleasant. Light-bodied.. a bit dry on the back half and quite refreshing.

UPDATED: JUL 27, 2012
2012-07-27, draught at Ram Restaurant and Brewery, Northgate, Seattle, 4-2-5-2-9=22
Blond color, hazy. Too light aroma. Dry mouthfeel, it has a crispy flavor of corn and moderate bitterness. Dry finish.
2006-12-17, draught at Humperdink’s, Dallas, as Texas Blonde, 2-2-2-2-4=12
Blond color. No aroma, no taste, just less close to water than the Light, but useless as well.

Nothing to write home about here. Crisp with a malt and wheat nose. A bit of lemon zest to simulate complexity on the palate. Better than a macro.
